We often hold an improper insight on pleasure and which are deemed more pleasurable than others. Pleasure can come in many different forms than just belongings and wealth. For society teaches us what is more pleasing and distorts our judgment of what pleasure truly is. Our pleasures and the pain that they bring must be calculated in order to gain the most satisfaction with the least amount of pain. Morals are what must be used in order to be able to make good judgments of what pleasure is. In the end what must be realized is the pleasures we need, the ones we do not, and the best ones to be chosen are the natural and intellectual ones.
The thought to pacify life brings pleasure, pleasure provokes satisfaction and satisfaction drives desire and indeed desire keeps man alive. The basic thing that makes your life moving and on going is the pursuit of your desires. Without desires life is going to be stagnant. Desires give you a motivation force to do better and to strive for more.
